Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
How do I clean and care for my teether or jewellery?

My beads have lint on them, what can I do to avoid this?
You can keep our teether's and bracelets in the muslin bags provided upon purchase or simple use a baby wipe or run them under water for a few seconds to clean them. The beads are resilient and don't scratch or come apart!
What is Baltic amber?
Amber is a fossilized tree resin that contains “succinic acid” which, by body warmth, is released into the skin. Succinic acid has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. For a teething baby, this means pain relief and less inflammation of the gums as well as reduced drooling.
How can I get the most therapeutic value out of amber jewellery?
To get the most therapeutic value from the amber, the baby should wear it as much as possible during the day. It is not recommended that the baby wear it to bed, or while unsupervised. However, if you want to maximize the benefit of the amber, you could wrap the necklace around the baby’s ankle inside his/her sleeper while they are sleeping.
Can my baby wear the teething necklace while sleeping?
You should remove the necklace whenever the child is unsupervised, including naps or bedtime. For maximum benefit from the amber, the necklace could be worn doubled around the ankle and worn inside a sleeper only. Do not allow the amber to be accessible to the child.
Are there any safety features on amber jewellery?
Yes. Each bead is knotted individually on the string. This ensures that in case the necklace breaks, they would only be able to free one bead. All the beads used in baby jewellery are smaller than a pea, so that they can be swallowed safely in the event that one should come free. The clasp at the back is free from all metals and allergens and is held together by knots ensuring if there was pressure placed on the necklace, the clasp would pop open.
How to care for amber?
Don't expose the amber to lotions, polishes and other residues that might coat the surface of the stones creating a barrier from the healing oil. Amber can be worn in the bath but not in the pool or hot tubs where chemicals are present and may harm the stones. If the necklace needs to be washed, only use warm water.
